This Week's Writerly Tarot: The Ace of Cups
It's enough to make any girl wanna retreat, possibly into a spa, definitely for a good long while.
But then we have the Ace of Cups to remind us — go with the flow, it says. Because life is always flowing.
And flow can feel very much like chaos. Which it is and isn't. Fluid dynamics provides equations that can predict the overall patterns of liquids in a state of flow, but at best it's describing how things will happen, not what will happen. Stirring a spoonful of cream into your coffee will have a predictable outcome, but trying to foresee the exact bouncing and swirling of molecules is a doomed endeavor.
So don't try. Don't even.
This week, hold high the Ace of Cups. It is reminiscent of last week's Three of Cups in that it encourages you to partake joyously. And to remember that when life is in full flow, don't get out the anchor. Get out your surfboard.
